Bald Head Island, NC Wedding | BHI Club

To close out my final wedding client of a wonderful September, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph my first  Bald Head Island, NC Wedding. Just south of Wilmington North Carolina, Bald Head Island, NC is accessible only by ferry and once on the island, the only mode of transportation available to most people are golf carts. Having never been to Bald Head Island, despite living in Raleigh almost my entire life, I was, of course, very excited.  When I initially met Matt & Jenn, they talked about having a wedding on the beach, just outside the Captain Charlie House and their reception at the BHI Club (Bald Head Island Club).  To say it was a great wedding is a true understatement.

When I arrived on Bald Head Island, NC it struck me both how quiet and surreal the island is. No cars, no bridges, just an island. What a perfect setting for a wedding! I met up with the happy couple on Friday evening at the Shoals Club to photograph their rehearsal dinner, meet their family, friends and just to hang out a bit. After loosing my golf cart (they all look alike you know) I finally made it back to my house and got prepared for the big wedding day.

The wedding day started by the bride getting ready at the Island Retreat Spa on Bald Head Island. Jenn and her Mom got their hair & makeup done by two fabulous ladies at the Spa while some more of the bridal party swung by to get their makeup taken care of. Back to their beach house where Jen and the ladies got dressed. Normally I dont talk much about the wedding dress but, wow, what a perfect choice! I headed over to the Captain Charlie Houses (Oldest houses on Bald Head Island) to get the guys getting ready. The houses are right on the beach and beach access 36 literally is just outside the front door of Captain Charlie #1.  We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather for a beach wedding. Blue skies and a wonderful breeze really set the tone for Jen & Matt’s wedding day and made for beautiful photographs. After the ceremony, we headed over to the BHI Club for the reception. I couldn’t resist leaning out of the side of the golf cart and photographing the newlyweds in their “just married” golf cart. Everyone danced, partied and even sang along thru the rest of the evening.

I cannot extend my gratitude enough to Stephen, Karen, Michael, Diane, Matt & Jen for their unbelievable hospitality. It was an honor for me to be there and I hope I can repay your hospitality one day.
